Botafogo vs Gremio (By: Dajkula)
Botafogo will try to catch some more points against Gremio in the 8`th round of the Brazilian Serie A. Botafogo is the rock solid host in the league and under the coach Barocca, Botafogo looks much more solid. Barocca likes the team to have plenty of possession and threw it they create chances. He has also managed to rotate their pretty slim squad and gave the chance to 27 players so far. Some consider him the wizard. We shall see if Botafogo can keep this up. They were one of the better home sides last season and finished with only 2 home losses. The bad away matches have kept them on the 9`th place.
Now, Botafogo is 4`th with 15 points and 5-0-2 so far. If they win this they can go to second. At home, Botafogo has 3-0-0 and 5:2 gd though they faced only 1 tough side called Bahia.
Gremio finished 4`th last season but this will hardly be repeated. They had some big matches in the Copa Libertadores so I don`t know if that affected them so great but the results are below par. Now they have a break and the Copa America will soon start. This will be the last match before that and Gremio has been playing better. They won 3 of the last 5 matches but all were played at home. Against the similar opponent, Bahia, they collected another loss which brings their away total to 0-2-2 and 2:4 gd.
Gremio will be far from optimum in this match as they miss Everton(att.6-3, first scorer), Luan(att.4-0), Matheus Henrique(mid.5-0), Jean Pyerre(mid.5-1).
Botafogo misses Jonathan (def.3-0), Gustavo Bochecha (mid.6-0) and the key player Rodrigo Pimpão(att.7-0).
Both teams have key missings but the hosts are the ones I trust more. At least they have shown more.
